    Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies [#101] Magic Bullets The search for a "cure" for cancer is the greatest epic in the history of science, spanning centuries and continents.

Interwoven with Farber's narrative is the contemporary story of a 14-month-old diagnosed with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

    Spark! [#707H] Kitka, May, Arts and the Economy * For 30 years, the all-female vocal group Kitka has performed music rooted in Eastern European musical traditions. In a recent trip to rural Ukraine, they studied Slavic folk songs that previously only existed in the memories of the old women who live there. Spark joins Kitka as they rehearse and perform a new performance based on the songs and stories that were passed down to them.
    * Next, the mixed-media work of Santa Cruz artist Victoria May is inspired by the intricate process of custom dress-making. A former seamstress by trade, May now makes sculptural textile pieces that blend traditional hand sewing techniques with evocative and unexpected materials.
    * Then, in a special collaboration with PBS' The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, we investigate how the current economy is affecting artists in the Bay Area. How are they coping with the economic downturn? Some scholars and activists think hope lies in government support. What can we learn from the historic WPA programs that provided employment for 8.5 Million Americans during the 1930's?

    Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies [#102] The Blind Men and the Elephant This episode picks up the story in the wake of the declaration of a "war on cancer" by Richard Nixon in 1971 and the search for a cure. In the lab, rapid progress is made in understanding the essential nature of the cancer cell, leading to the revolutionary discovery of the genetic basis of cancer, but few new therapies become available. Not until the late 1990s do advances in research begin to translate into more precise targeted therapies with breakthrough drugs. Following the history during these fraught decades, the film intertwines the contemporary story of an oncologist diagnosed with breast cancer. Her emotional and physical struggles provide a bracing counterpoint to the historical narrative. duration 1:56:46   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: none)

    Sisters This documentary takes the audience into the life stories of 5 American nuns. It is a film about faith and hope, love and death, seen through the eyes of 5 women who have committed everything to the service of others in the deepest way.
    Their stories are told in the honest words and actions of the women themselves. They hold nothing back. Each has taken the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, and their devotion is revealed principally through service to those in need - the poor, sick, and uneducated. They live and work around us, and yet to many they seem to exist in a world of their own. Out in their everyday existence, in the clothing of ordinary women, these Sisters live lives that are at once profoundly spiritual yet deeply human. Produced by 3-time Emmy winner and Academy Award nominee Robert Gardner, the film is a surprising and moving exploration of a world few of us know.
